We weren't too hungry so we split the Chicken Carbon Fajitas. Even with the split, when you add the $2 split charge, you get a lot of food. It included black beans, rice, chicken, onions, bell peppers, lettuce, guacamole, salsa and sliced tomatoes. You can get flour or corn tortillas, we mixed then and both were good. Live music on...

Walking around downtown Carlsbad and heard the live music. The band was playing on the outside patio and was quite good and very entertaining. Billy Watson....we bought a cd. Ice cold beer and good Mexican food with live music... Doesn't get much better than that!

Hubby and I needed a drink after a long week so we slipped out after the kids were settled. Hadn't been here in many years and it still seems to be the go-to place. Typical bar/club late night. We had a few drinks, watched the younger people dance and left after about 1 hours. It served it's purpose.

I was looking for some live music, a glass of wine, and something to snack on. While the food was good, the atmosphere was LOUD and seemed to be a gathering place for the older, single and looking crowd.

We stopped by for a mid-afternoon appetizer and drink. Weather was perfect so we sat outside. Had a few draft beers and the crispy asparagus (very good) and chicken quesadillas (average). Friendly waitress who answered our questions about the menu and the area. It overlooks the train (Coaster and Amtrak) which run about every 15 min but we really didn't... More

Great food here. We sat inside and really enjoyed our meal. My husband said that their burgers were amazing. I had vegetable quesadilla which was fantastic.

I love to sit outside and enjoy the live music around the fire pits! Great food and drinks! Chips and salsa is served and the fun will start. Located in the heart if the village. After 10:00 the inside bar turns into a dance spot and I'd is required. Young and older hang out here and it's a fun time.

Tasty choices (loved the fajitas & the lime salad!), great happy hour & fun live music. Good cold beer on tap & good fresh food - close to our hotel, but I would've walked further to dine here. Not sure why the reviews are not better here...we really enjoyed the food and service so are rating it accordingly with 5... More
